Meet Pegi Eyers, a leader in the Ancestral Arts movement at Chapters Kingston September 23, 2017. Ancient Spirit Rising delves into the fascinating new movement to find ancestral connections that define our self-identity, and the recovery of a specific ethnoculture. In fact, what better place to find the tools and worldviews we need moving forward, than from our own heritage? And for those who hear the “call of the wild” or are yearning for a more intimate relationship with nature, today’s exciting movements in animism, rewilding, voluntary simplicity, eco-living and sustainable community are all outlined in Ancient Spirit Rising. The wisdom of our communal past holds the seeds for the future!

“As Canada’s convoluted relationship with First Nations continues to take centre stage, social justice for indigenous peoples has become the overwhelming need of our time.” Ancient Spirit Rising
“Learning from First Nations in Canada brings great responsibility,” says local author Pegi Eyers. With her new book Ancient Spirit Rising: Reclaiming Your Roots & Restoring Earth Community she delves into developing good intercultural competency skills, charting the route to reconciliation, and the many pathways to earth spirituality for all people. From three years of research Ancient Spirit Rising digs deep, and provides clear and concise guidelines to important questions. What can we do to right the wrongs of history? What is our responsibility in the nation-to-nation relationship that built this country? What can we do to effectively make change?
Meet author Pegi Eyers, a leader in the Ancestral Arts movement at a book signing at Chapters Peterborough this Saturday, November 19 from 1 – 4 pm. On her quest to discover the truth about the Settler/First Nations divide, Pegi’s strong bonds to the Kawartha landscape provided the anchor for her thinking and writing process. She sees herself as part of a new generation of Canadians who are “awake and aware,” yet are frustrated or confused by taking on the activist role. Since Idle No More her own work in social justice has steadily increased, and one of her many projects maintaining the Allies in Solidarity with First Nations (Canada) group on Facebook has been very rewarding.
In response to the recent directive from First Nations Elders “to return to our own indigenous knowledge,” Pegi points out that our own ethnocultural recovery and spiritual practice should go hand-in-hand with social justice work and earth remediation. And for those who hear the “call of the wild” or are yearning for a more intimate relationship with nature, today’s exciting movements in animism, rewilding, voluntary simplicity, slow food, eco-living and sustainable community are all outlined in Ancient Spirit Rising.
An all-inclusive blend of cultural studies, social commentary, ecospirituality and practices for recovering the Old Ways, Ancient Spirit Rising is a compendium for change! Join the author Pegi Eyers for this exciting book launch and signing at Chapters Peterborough this Saturday from 1 – 4.
